Great place of Mayan ruins. This was a historic site that held religious importance. The elite lived here. Burials, religious sacrifices, and anything that was considered sacred! Find a tour guide to get more information about the daily lives!

Don’t visit this place as it’s one of the ‘lesser’ Mayan ruins in central America & is frequently closed! We went there today, after first consulting with the tourism office in Santa Ana. We knew it was closed on Monday but were surprised to find that it was also closed today (Wednesday) as ‘it’s rained a lot recently’! We pointed out that at the time of our visit, there was sun & blue skies, plus we only wanted 5 minutes to take a few photos, but nothing we said made any difference. We were furious that having done all our research & traveled so far, that we weren’t even able to take a few photos, except from outside the fence.

To be honest, i was expecting a more impressive place, bigger, but it's not, it's located about 1 hour from the capital, and the area is relatively small, such an impressive structure just to learn that there is nothing inside. On one side there is a small museum with interesting pieces of information and history. I would advice to include this with other destinations like Joya de Ceren to compliment your day.

If you've seen other major Mayan sites in Latin America this might not impress--it's a simple complex of a roughly 4-storey step pyramid and some other ruins. But it's a nice park area, and enjoyable to walk around (and on) the ruins. There are some shade trees, so a fun place to take a picnic and soak in the scenery. A small building near the entrance has a 4 rooms of history and photos as a good reference. This is a nice day trip from San Salvador, and much better than Joya de Cerén. Good local food can be had on the cheap from the carts lined up along the fence surrounding the site.

What a great time! The volunteer guide, was sooo interactive and knowledgeable. He was fun and even offered to give us a tour around the grounds. It was such an amazing experience learning about our ancestors. The scenery is so beautiful! The grass is extremely green and the shops around the place are a definite must do! Have fun and remember to help preserve these areas.
